Terms and conditions for selling instruments via this website

I am not able to buy the instrument directly from you as I have no space to keep it. So basically, I help you sell your instrument via my website, social media, etc. There is no time limit to selling the instrument. I cannot guarantee a fast sale. 

Disclaimer: Because of the difficulty to get exact information on the instruments, it is necessary to say that I am not responsible in any way for misinformation in any form whatsoever. Therefore I have made these terms and conditions. Please see the following link for more information. > Copyright and Disclaimer
